Nick O’Neal, Wade Neely, Janet and Ron Rhodes, owners, Bill MedicineCrow and Dustin Hulet make up the service team at Affordable Automotive in Broken Arrow.
Although it is still warm outside, winter lurks just around the corner. Many people have not begun thinking about the upcoming cold months. However, Ron Rhodes and his Affordable Automotive group offer services to ensure your car’s readiness to face the cold months ahead.
A member of the Better Business Bureau, Affordable Automotive has been an Eastern Oklahoma Honor Roll recipient for the past two years. Rhodes, who has over 20 years of experience in the automotive service industry, has a crew of specialists trained in domestic and foreign automotive repair for cars and light trucks. The group’s three certified technicians do everything, including battery maintenance, oil changes, tune-ups, repairs and, of course, winterizing vehicles.
Rhodes stresses the importance of having vehicles thoroughly inspected every year. A small expense now to ensure that an automobile is operating properly could save hundreds or even thousands of dollars down the road. Most people care not to even think about their vehicles breaking down in the cold weather. As we approach the winter months, it makes good sense to have everything checked out.
Affordable Automotive’s Safety First 27-Point Vehicle Inspection includes: inspecting the condition of front and rear tires, drive shaft joint boots, McPherson struts, rear shock absorbers, front and rear brakes, hydraulic brake system, emergency brake, clutch adjustment, muffler, engine, transmission oil, drive belts, radiator, hoses, battery, cables, spark plugs and wires. The team leaves nothing uncovered as they also check air and fuel filters, wiper blades, head light operation, signal lights, heater and air conditioning operation, as well as the vehicle’s restraint system. As an added bonus, Affordable Automotive tops-off all fluids when performing an oil change.
Give Affordable Automotive a call today at (918) 251-9695 and schedule an appointment. Prevent dealing with big vehicle problems in the middle of winter. Have your car or truck winterized as soon as possible.
